Question about Miele S548 Bagged Canister Vacuum
I had trouble with this Miele vac starting, it would try to come on when the rewind would move; I took it apart found the electrical connections inside the rewind to be dirty and not making good contact because what seemed to be too much end play at the rewind axle, put a washer there, cleaned the copper rotary electrical connections and it seemed to do the job; So I put the unit back together and my wife informed that the carpet beater would not come on. So I take it apart and look to see if something was left unconnected, did not find anything that looked obvious. I checked to see if it was sending 110 volts to the connection where the vac hand held hose plugs into the cannister, no voltage; it had continunity from where the hand held hose connection plugs into the vac all the way back to the connections inside the motor compartment, it was good. Also I checked that the cover safety lockout was going into its socket to make a connection, was OK. Could I have got some wires switched inside where the rewind electrical connections are, is there a schematic to show me something on wiring detail or did something short out that feeds 110 volts to the power head unit. Do you have some advice where I may need to check next or what parts I need to check.....My wife is having a fit......................Thanks......Ronnie.......
Once again remove the electrical connections and clean it and also blow the dirt and then fit it tightly and carefully.if anything broken inside replace it.

It sounds like the spring on the cord reel let go. difficult to reinstall. it may have been broken already and that is why it came off. it is rather meticulous trying to work on a cord reel. many can't be disassembled without breaking
